This was visited by Rick Stein for his TV series and I know why. Service fantastic, great atmosphere but above the food, fantastic seafood, and melt in your mouth pasta. You have to try the Sabayon Desert. Well worth taking the extra time to travel the backstreets to find this great restaurant

Absolutely outstanding! I Everything was exceptional across the board: food quality, presentation, service, ambience, and value. While they specialize in fish, I opted for the traditional Bolognese tasting menu, which was amazing. The food quality is exceptional and the service some of the best I have received in Italy; truly genuine and welcoming, yet professional and knowledgable. Highly recommended.

This restaurant was under 5 minutes walk from our hotel and only a short distance from the Piazza Maggiore. Ciacco specialises in fish, although other dishes are on the menu. We ate downstairs in a barrel-vaulted undercroft. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable and spoke good English. The atmosphere was fairly formal but a large party of locals provided plenty...

Outstanding local restaurant. We had the degustation menu. Dried meats to start, two types of pasta, pork tenderloin and two types of dessert together with recommeded Bolognese wine. Food was to die for and the owner and waitress made us so welcome. Can't rate highly enough

My wife and I had the €50 seafood degustation menu and enjoyed all of the dishes. The service was also very good and friendly. We chose a nice crisp Pinot Grigio from the excellent wine list.

This is one of my secret treats when in Bologna - even though it was recently reviewed by Rick Stein I don’t think many people could find it easily. It IS tucked away in the backstreets but from first to last it was wonderful. Normally I go by myself but as my children are older it was time to introduce... More

We wanted to have a sea food dinner so chose Ciacco after reading reviews and were not disappointed. We don't know much about Italian wine and our host was most helpful. Attentive service and to expensive.
